Bug Banquet – Culinary Experience

November 6, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$35 – $50

Enjoy an evening of entomophagy prepared by expert chef’s and Bexar County 4-H Food Challenge Teams. Dine under the stars at Clearwater Ranch and learn how raising insects is a sustainable form of agriculture and a surprisingly enjoyable culinary experience.

Delight in an expertly prepared four course meal made with delectable insects and paired with an appropriate    cocktail, beer or wine.  Food prepared with insects can be pushed to the side for those not so inclined to partake.

Tentative Menu:

  • Fire Ant Queso (blanco queso seasoned with local peppers and fire ants); paired with Honey Bee Cocktails from local bees.
  • Candied Pear Salad Greens with Roasted Mealworms (mealworms add a nutty flavor to a sweet salad with local greens); paired with local craft beer (TBD).
  • Goat Cheese Quesadillas & roasted sweet potatoes and squash from local garden (tortillas made with high protein cricket flour, Texas goat cheese and locally grown sweet potatoes); paired with local craft beer (TBD).
  • Chocolate covered strawberries garnished with toasted coconut cricket granola; paired with Strawberry Riesling from Helotes winery.
